It seems obvious to most but safe driving includes paying attention to the road and limiting distractions as much as possible. “We are urging people to stay attentive while driving by paying attention to other drivers and pedestrian traffic,” shares the Uintah County Sheriff’s Office. “Distracted driving is always a concern for law enforcement and with new gaming crazes for phones and other media devices that concern has grown, especially with younger drivers.” Similar safety warnings from law enforcement have popped up around the country since the Pokemon Go game app for smartphones and devices has taken over the world. The game definitely has a following in the Uintah Basin and groups playing it can be seen at local parks and other area locations where Pokemon characters are virtually hiding. The request is simple: Local law enforcement is asking citizens to stay safe by putting their devices away while driving, wearing seatbelts and watching speeds.
